Hi Everyone! I as well have inherited a grandfather clock from Colonial Manufacturing Co, Zeeland Michigan, Model II25. It has a German movement from M.Bauerle with a marking 805 on it and what I assume to be a serial number 156604. I believe the movement was from the company started by Mathias Baurle. The coil gong is a Kaiser-Gong D.R.P.a which from my research was made by Junghans with a "patent applied for" designation. The patent was finally granted in 1910. I have reason to believe that the cabinet case was made between 1900 to 1910. I was hoping to find out a couple of things: 1. More information on the clock to really figure out when it was manufactured. 2. More information on how to restore the clock face. A friend let me borrow silver powder that he made some how. I want to find more powder to finish restoring my chapter ring, but all I can find on the internet is stuff from the U.K. 3. I also wish to find out what process was used and how to repair the gold portion of my clock dial face. It looks like gold plated on top of brass because I rubbed off some of it when I was attempting to polish it with brass cleaner. The plate is all monolithic, in one piece. It appears to have been stamped with impressions or etched some how for the engraving work. The back side of the dial is fully flat single one monolithic piece. The chapter ring is not a separate piece of material. I am so happy to have received my great grandfathers clock. I am even happier that my adult daughter wants it too, that means one day she will have her great great grandfathers clock! Appreciate any help on information anybody may have on it and how to restore the dial face.
